Who are we? → History & Values
Ruff & Associés, an accountancy and audit firm founded in 1976 in Nice by Gérard Ruff, has developed as a family firm with the primary aim of placing advice and accompaniment at the heart of its service to clients.
The constant, steady growth of the business – proof of our clients’ trust in us – led us to set up two other structures: Mouans-Sartoux in 2004 and Le Cannet des Maures in the Var in 2009.
Today, our clients are mainly small and medium-sized companies established in the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var.
The firm has also developed particular experience in the property sector and in accompanying foreign investors who are looking to move into France and/or involved in business in the region.
We have also set up a solid international network of professionals to accompany our clients abroad.

Proximity: We are keen to be close to our clients to offer them an accompaniment adapted to their needs.
Success: Our development is based on our clients’ success: without them, we do not exist.
Quality: We make it a matter of honour to provide with high-quality services in compliance with the methods and regulations that govern our profession.
The group now has fifty employees, including six partners, who work to embody these values by:
